The Battle between Two Wolves

One evening, an old Cherokee told his grandson about a battle that goes on inside people.

He said,

“My beloved grandson, the battle inside every person is between two wolves.

One is Evil. It is anger, envy, sorrow, regret, greed, arrogance, self-pity, guilt, resentment, inferiority, false pride and ego.

The other is Good. It is joy, peace, love, hope, serenity, humility, kindness, benevolence, empathy, generosity, compassion and faith.”

The grandson thought for a minute and then asked his grandfather, “Which wolf wins?”

The old Cherokee gently grasped the boy’s shoulder and replied, “The one you feed.”

There are so many interpretations of this old Cherokee story.

This battle inside you can also be applied to the decisions you make to keep or eliminate “stuff” in your life.  When you’re faced with downsizing, and it’s tough to decide, which wolf will you feed?
